[roots] Fwd:

Tooth 17 sent for finishing the treatment due to lack of
finding the 3rd canal, the DB. The other canals were ” already prepared” to the
“correct length”, 15,5 mm.
Saw from beginning the distal search for the DB canal,
with too large opening.
4 canals, necrotic, lengths were 20 for MB, MB2 and DB
and 22 for P.
Look at tooth 16 with image suggesting oblique root
fracture. No pockets and no complaints there. I see a skinny shape and still
probably a crack (associated bone loss in furcation as well). And apical lesion
as well.
Is this in the surving group, as evidence for success of
this type of endo ?
Is this evidence that saved PCD and skinny shapes make
the tooh “go the long run” ???
